Acamas is the name for the Cyclops of Greek myth. There were three Cyclops belonging to Gaia and Ouranos. They were single eyed giants with their one eye in the middle of their forehead. They were called Brontes, Steropes and Arges which all refer to thunder and lightning. They were once imprisoned in Tartarus by the Titans but were rescued by the Olympian gods who persuaded them to join them. They were then given the task to make weapons for the gods in forgeries under Mount Etna. The three Cyclops were killed by the arrows of Apollo after they made the arrows that killed the Greek hero Aesculapius.
